When setting up a date field, and wanting to use it for folks picking their DOB, I put in the allow dates field 1/1/1920 to 12/31/1999. It won't stick. Can put in the allow dates field 12/31/1999 to 1/1/1920. It won't stick. What are the limitations of the calendar field? Or... what am I doing wrong? Using the latest version Full-1.1.3261

Looks like it only allows us to go back to 12/22/2010.
That's strange.
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Yep, odd. I am not suggesting this is the best way to get this data in (if I can only click for a month at a time... this could take a while!). The functionality would be great, especially if you could, say... click on the date, and it would go backwards. If anyone has Peachtree Accounting software, you can see what I was hoping for. But, since I can't get a date-range to stick, it would be good to know what the actual usable range is.

You can also manually enter in a date like 1/1/1920 but if you try 1/1/2919 it won't go back that far.

Back? That is forward according to my calendar. But maybe you mean 1.1.1919?

Oh well, you'll probably edit your post and say you never made that typo... :P:lol:

Why can't we insert 1.1.1919 anyway? We still have a lot of 93 year olds around...

Why would you use 1.1.19? That is not a date format I am familiar with. Dates are always separated by a / like 1/1/1919

Ah, I see you asked for that format in the other thread. You crazy Europeans. ;)

I did. And I'm still waiting for it. I know Europe seems like the outer world to you, but we also use your seoftware. :P

Scott - did you just leave the date to date fields blank? I have not published mine, I just couldn't get the dates to stick in the tool.

Have something to add? We’d love to hear it!
